Description: Enoteca Properzio 2 is set in a very specific context, specifically in a place dating in 1550, part of the famous palazzo dei Canonici , next to the Cathedral of Santa Maria Maggiore in Spello. Legend says that here Pinturicchio lived and worked in this environment for a long time , (considered the most celebrated artist in the area). Enoteca Properzio 2 , also protected by the Fine Arts, comes from the requeirement to offer customers a greater and more impressive space compared to the original Properzio 1. The restaurant is divided into several areas, designed for the maximum comfort of guests: outdoor area with umbrellas, indoor dining rooms , rooms for private tastings and a large interior courtyard for summer. Why do people choose Enoteca Properzio 2? It is the ideal place for breakfasts, lunches and exclusive dinners with tasting menus or a la carte or even to enjoy amazing aperitivi at any time during your day.

We are Americans living in southern Italy, and thus have the good fortune to be able to visit Enoteca Properzio with some frequency. Any time we are traveling to Toscana or Umbria we make whatever detour is necessary from our route to visit the proprietor Roberto and enjoy the wonderful tasting menu. The good food, excellent wine, first-class service, and charm of this place will keep you coming back time and time again (or wishing you could!). You will probably also learn a thing or two since Roberto always makes time to teach you a little about the wines you are tasting.

We had the most wonderful lunch here in September. The food, the owner, his son and brother were all incrediable. We were there for 3 hours and so much fun. We also bought a few cases of wine which were shipped promptly and continue to remind of the experience. If you are in Spello you must stop by and visit/eat/drink with the Angelini's!

After reading the reviews on Tripadvisor of the Enoteca Properzio in the beautiful town of Spello we decided to stop for a quick glass of the local Grechetto wine after a long day of sightseeing. We were ever glad that we did. After drinking our glass of wine we were about to leave when we were approached by the charming owner, Roberto Angelini, and his lovely daughter, Irena, who engaged us in a conversation about the local vintages and life in Spello. Roberto insisted that we try the prosciutto and pecorino cheese as well as other local delicacies accompanied by the wonderful wine stocked by this Enoteca. Our quick glass of Grechetto turned into a two hour memorable visit. Definitely a highlight of not only our recent trip to Umbria but of our eight or so previous trips to Italy. We cannot say enough about Roberto and Irena and the Enoteca Properzio. Grazie Roberto and Irena. We will return.

We spent a wonderful afternoon in the courtyard for a 5-course lunch and wine tasting, it was one of our best meals of our entire trip to Italy and excellent reserve wines not exported to the U.S. We spent most of the afternoon, shipped wine home, and thoroughly enjoyed Roberto's expertise and good humor with us. Highly highly recommend going there; we will definitely go back!

Umbria (not Tuscany), Spello (not Assisi), Enoteca Properzia (not a remote farmhouse), seventh generation Roberto & family (not a wannabe upstart) - - - hope you are getting this picture. We've been visiting Roberto's Enoteca Properzia a bit more than every other year since 2005. This is the real deal for Italian wine, and for getting it shipped-back home. For our first couple of visits we had Anne of Anne's Italy translate the subtleties of Roberto's expertise during tasting. (Anne is a 40 yr expat and a certified guide -- nothing gets by her.) Since then we've trusted Roberto's selections and haven't been let-down. He knows what's good, what the current market is, and his firm gets it shipped sans drama. This is THE place, inside THE small medieval mountain-top village, an hour and twenty minutes by train, plus a 10 minute cab-ride, north of Rome. (We stay at Palazzo Bocci.) ENJOY!!!
